a song cycle

A massive year long cycle and vlog composed and performed by David Davila in 2011. Davila challenged himself to write and perform a song a week for an entire year while he vlogged about the process. The result was a large collection of personal, political, hysterical, and often poignant songs reflecting the world of a starving artist living in New York City.

All 52 songs by David Davila

select songs cowritten with:

Steph Nash, Thomas Dieter, Eric Grunin, Sean Havrilla, Maria Guadalupe Davila, Gerardo Davila, Charles Barksdale, Roxanne Cardenas, Yalda Zamiri, Xavier Ciro, and Drew Gasparini.

#52songs was originally performed at the Laurie Beechman Theatre with additional sold out performances at The Triad, The West End, and the Underground.
